SPG 35% discount on points purchase is back. The discount is available for purchases made now through December 29, 2017 – save 35% on all purchases of 5,000 or more Starpoints.
You can maximize on the sale by purchasing up to 30,000 starpoints for $682.50 USD. SPG limits purchase up to 30,000 per account per calendar year. Note that Starpoints purchased do not count toward elite status.
Easy leverage on the discount
You can further leverage this sale by gifting additional points to other accounts and then transferring them to your primary account. The transfer is free as long as the address on the accounts match (30 day minimum) 🙂
SPG points transfer 1:1 to several airline miles with 5K bonus on every 20K transferred. More importantly, SPG transfers to Marriott 1:3 and you can really scale this promotion, like I did when I converted 90K starpoints into 150K Aeroplan + 7 night Marriott certificate.
I don’t recommend buying points just to fatten your account balance. However, with a specific use in mind this promotion can be very handy.Golden rule is to not purchase points unless you plan to use it within a calendar year.
